HC Deb 01 March 1967 vol 742 c120W
Mr. Gwynfor Evans

asked the Secretary of State for Wales, in view of the fact that by 1970 England will have 15.1 miles of motorway per million people and Wales 8.9 miles per million people, what plans he has to raise the Welsh to the level of the English proportion.

Mr. Cledwyn Hughes

In Welsh conditions other types of new roads, many of which will have dual carriageways, will be more appropriate than motorways, to which access from other roads has to be severely restricted. Taking all types of roads together, my plans do provide for Wales to have a fair share of total national expenditure.
